Fresh out of Melbourne and here to tug on your heart strings, Bek Doery is the brooding talent behind Bekdö, an electronic indie-pop singer/songwriter making a name for herself as one of Australia’s brightest young artists.
Influenced by the likes of Angus and Julia Stone, London Grammar and Highasakite, Bekdö has crafted a unique sound of her own with debut single Only One, an infectious new track that touches on themes of loss, regret and longing.
Blending soothing vocals with bursts of colour and subtle synths, Only One chews up an emotionally heavy theme, spitting out something light, floaty and undeniably catchy.
Working with talented producer Hayden Jeffery, the new track offers a series of playful melodies, gentle washes of synths and some good old fashioned guitar plucking to create the unique and spaced out effects that makes the track so distinguishable.
Only One has an immediate isolated feel about it, with the emphasis on Doery’s vocals over the instrumental creating a personal feeling that’s impossible to ignore. Touching on such a raw, honest subject lyrically, the choice of musical elements closely resonates with themes of loneliness and heartbreak with a slightly more optimistic feel.
“My number one priority was to keep it as real and raw as possible, because I believe that’s what people connect with best. I want my music to make people feel; so I write about my own life experiences with brutal honesty,” says Doery.
“I think we achieved that authenticity in Only One, and although it feels like I’m reading my personal diary to the world, I believe that vulnerability is what makes it special.”
Bekdö will be performing at The Workers Club in Fitzroy for the launch of Only One. The event will take place on December 15th and offers a heart-melting set with one of Melbourne’s wonderful up and coming artists.
